The petals are cut from thick white wax. Colour them upon both sides
with bright scarlet (scarlet and crimson both in powders), form a very
small foundation of white wax to the end of a fine wire. Cut five fine
and short stamina, place them on the foundation, and colour them red.
Affix the five petals round, the two largest placed uppermost, the three
smaller ones under. Attach calyx as in the former flower. Cover the stem
neatly with light green wax, and mount the flowers in clusters. Make
some buds moulded in light green wax, others in white wax, painted
scarlet at the points; and the calyx placed round as in the flower.
